So I've become completely obsessed with LUSH products lately, and just to keep track of what I buy/Haul/Review, I'm going to post what I get on here, and what I think about it.
 Each Peach (and two's a pear!) Massage Bar - $8.75 - "So Massage Bars are pretty much the greatest thing ever invented. Each kind they sell has some form of design on it, so that there's a textured side to massage with. I don't use it as in massage, but I like it as a solid lotion. It's made out of Shea Butter, so it melts in your hand. ITS AMAZING! I keep it in a tin so it doesn't get warm or wet when I'm not using it. The scent is very light, but doesn't smell like peaches to me, its more of a lemony-citrus smell. I bought one for my mom too and she loves it! Will DEF buy again when mine runs out. "
 Buffy the Backside Slayer Body Butter - $21.35 for the large size - This is my all-time favorite shower product! I don't have very sensitive skin, and this is a really good exfoliater. Not gonna lie, my feet are really nasty, and they were so smooth in only one use. The scent is light as well, it's a mixture of cocoa butter, shea butter, almond, and lavender, but I never noticed a floral scent to it at all. I don't really like "nutty" scents, but thats the only way to describe it, but its something I love! A little pricey for the big one, but it works so well! I've used it 3 times already and its not even half gone. Will probably get 8-10 shower uses.
 Honey I Washed the Kids Soap - My piece was $20.22 for .535lbs - LUSH is pretty much known for their variety of soaps, and I wanted to try some out. "Honey I washed the kids" and "Porridge" were big hits with Youtube gurus. I went to LUSH, and fell in love with this scent, which is a really like honey scent, but really didn't like Porridge although it had exfoliating pieces. It was too sweet. Im keeping this soap wrapped up until I move, so I can start using it next week! The top is also real honeycomb, and apparently works as a exfoliater too! I need to cut off slices when I get to my new apartment.
 Sandstone Soap - My piece was $14.88 for .425lbs- I told the sales girl there that I really like exfoliaters, and she noticed that I like citrus scents from other purchases, and found me this soap. It has a rough top made of condensed sand (which sounds kinda dirty to me) But the smell is TO DIE FOR! It smells like fresh lemonade, I swear. Im saving  this one too until I move. 
 Woosh Shower Jelly - My piece was $4.25 for about 8-10 showers worth - This really didn't appeal to me at all, but I saw a youtube video of how they worked, and was amazed at how much lather they created with such little product. It looks like jell-o and they cut you off a slab of your choice size in the store. This is a citrus smell as well, but might smell a little too much like cleaning product for me, I'll have to see. You cut off little slices of this so it lasts. I was also recommended to keep it n my fridge to stiffen it.
 Angels on Bare Skin Facial Cleanser - My piece was $4.23 for a weeks worth (I wanted to see how I liked it before buying more) - I know its really bad that Im in the beauty industry and don't have a solid skin care regiment, but Im trying to establish one. I heard that this product was amazing as well for a daily cleanser. Im not really fond of the scent, but it smells floral and clean, so we'll see. 

 The Olive Branch Shower Gel - I got a small sample of this, so I didn't pay anything. The store is so unique that I never really thought to buy a basic shower gel there, and probably won't, unless this stuff does something outstanding. The smell of it is actually pretty good though, and a unisex scent. We'll see how I like it, I will probably try it this evening!

I am free.

"Why do you fly outside the box?" 

"i fly outside the box because I can"

"but we know the box. we are safe inside the box"

"that, my friend, is why I leave it. For you may be safe,  but i am free"

Ken's wedding

You'll end up looking like a life-size Barbie who is about to show up at Ken's wedding to another woman right in the middle of the ceremony, making everyone turn around and gasp and wonder why you're wearing white TOO, and whether you're going to yell that you object or just sit there crossing and uncrossing your legs while Ken stammers through his vows.

sex and mimosas

I wish life was all sex and mimosas.

Wouldn't that be fantastic?

mouths the words...

She's got her panties around her ankles, and a tattoo on her foot. I don't feel sorry for her in the least bit. Or miss her when she's gone. But I love when girls mouth the word..."panties".

I'm craving a song lyric around my wrist, like a bracelet of chains, holding me down.

"theres more to life than second chances."

When I fuck my boyfriend, I pretend Im really fucking Wes Anderson. He's brilliant. I seem to watch the Royal Tenebaums over and over and over and over again, and it never makes any sense. I'm looking for sense in the senseless.  Are we all overproduced?

Who knew that Marc Jacobs was so marked up? With colored stars all over his body. And a name scrawled across his chest.

Aren't always

Nobody knows.

and she fights for her life, as she puts on her coat. and she fights for her life on the train. she looks at the rain as it pours. and she fights for her life when people are pleasantly strange and counting the change. and she goes. nobody knows. 

Guilty and Neutral.

Listening to Silversun Pickups and feeling more and more hollow. Maybe Chicago isn't made for settling down. I forget what it's like to hurt, and I forget what it's like to love, and I wish I felt something other than neutral. These pills make me feel guilty. Guilty and neutral. 

When I move, I'll start over. I just want to feel things again, create things again, breathe again.
